Time . . . a common word, yet what does it really 
mean? Look it up in the dictionary? Hmmmm . . . "The 
system of those relations which at any event has to any 
other as past, present, or future; indefinite continuous dura- 
tion regarded as that in which events succeed one another." 
Phew! And fifty more definitions fust like it. Can we really 
ever defne it? We doubt it. Time escapes us too fast to 
pin it down and pigeon-hole it with a pat definition. We 
can never say for sure: This is past; this present; this 
future. At 10:15, 10:14 is the past, 10:15 the present, and 
10:16 the future. At 10:16, the present has become past; and 
the future, the preseyit. The past, present, and future move 
in never-ending cycles, rushing headlong into each other, di- 
verging, and meeting again. The world is wittingly caught up 
in their frenzied and ceaseless motion. Only one thing re- 
mains constant — the TIT 1 n ; all else is divided, in 
the mind of man, into Yesterday, Today, and T omorjow . . . . 



edication 



The tvork of a tyiily great man remains an everlasting monument of 
human vision, energy, and zeal. Although the man may cease his active work, 
his thoughts and deeds survive — and leave an indelible stamp upon the 
future. 

The work of Rabbi Charles Triedman, the Principal of Yeshiva Uni- 
versity High School for Girls of Brooklyn — General Studies Department, in 
molding young souls — inspiring nobility, instilli>ig hope, inculcating faith, 
bloiving the coals into a useful flame, in short: educating creatively by new 
thoughts and firm actions, — is without doubt the work of a truly great man. 

We, the class of 1965, have experienced the fruits of this man's energy 
and influence. And, consequently, we have been immeasurably enriched. 

It is therefore that we, the graduating class of 1963, respectfully and 
gratefully dedicate our yearbook to RABBI CHARLES FRIEDMAN, as a 
small token of our profound gratitude and heartfelt appreciation. May the 
Almighty bless him with many, many more years of fruitful and productive 
activity.

"What is past is prologue." — Shakespeare 

How many of us, on the night before a history final, under the influence of 
black coffee and No-Doz, have ever asked ourselves: "Why must 1 study things 
that happened in the past? IFhat bearing do they have on my life today? Why 
can't the past remain buried?" When these same questions are considered in a 
saner frame of mind , they seem childishly insipid . Who realizes more than a' few 
how great is the influence of the past upon our present lives? The miD that 
governs our daily lives ivas given to us in the past. Every minute of the day ive 
practice a principle taught in the past; when we recite a nD~13 , lue are ac- 
cepting n" 'Wn as the Creator of the Universe and all' that is in it; when 
we face niTQ to pray, we think of Vk~1^' f~\'ii — our spiritual home- 
land; when we give HpT^ or invite friends to our homes, we are practicing 
the mo taught us by our n 1 3 K 

By looking back, we can also, to some extent, predict the future; and it is 
not always pleasant. We have learned of the persecution of our people in the past 
and have witnessed it in the present. But ive have also witnessed the downfall of 
our oppressors — Babylonia. Persia, Greece, Rome, Turkey, and Germany. This perse- 
cution will continue; only by ivithstanding the n 1 J 1 ' D J put to us by 
n^apn can we be ivorthy of n'K/cn fl^'^

s-.*. 



Once upon a time, more than two thousand years 
ago, between Mt. Bedford and Mt. Snyder, there 
was a little town called Modi'in (known today as 
"Meydlach"). The population of this town num- 
bered some five hundred inhabitants. The reason that 
this town was so small was due to the very limited 
amount of FRESH air. You see, there was plenty 
of HOT air, and sometimes a few of the inhabi- 
tants themselves were FRESH; but behind that ever- 
present smoke-screen — there was simply no FRESH 
air! This was so mainly because a mysterious in- 
dividual would go around from house to house — 
in the dead of night — and shut all the windows. 
In fact, it is reliably reported that even the doors 
were barricaded! And so, miracle of miracles, de- 
spite these handicaps, some five hundred hardy, 
rugged individualists — none of whom, though, were 
"SINGLE"-minded — somehow managed to survive 

in this town. 

Among the inhabitants of this town of "Meyd- 
lach" was the family of Fuldayohu and his five 
sons: Yehudoh HaDardaki, Shimon HaRubeli, Elozor 
HaHoffmani, Yonoson HaKamberi, and Yochonon 
HaLichtensteini. Wow, what a family! What were 
they really like? Well, the less said, the better! 

There was much confusion in the land because 
of political turmoil then going on. Barry Antiyochus, 
the Conservative, was desperately trying to persuade 
all the "Meydlach" to come over to his party. In 
fact, his slogan was: "It's easier to be a half -Jew 
than a Fulda-Jew!" Sadly enough, this made quite 
a "hit" with many of the "Meydlach" for "in 
their hearts they knew he was right." 

Well, one day, Fuldayohu was walking along the 
streets of the town, when he encountered a group 
of armed "Meydlach" who threatened him with his 
life unless he would lend his moral support to the 
Conservative, Barry Antiyochus. "Yes," they de- 
clared, "if you will only do 712 IWn and 
see the light, we promise even to make our party 
your party!" 

However, Fuldayohu was a thinking man, and 
he resisted these pressures by bravely replying: "We 
Tareyton smokers would rather fight than switch!" 
And that's just what he proceeded to do. 

He immediately fled to his warehouse — some call 



it an arsenal — in "Meydlach"-town, between Mt. 
Bedford and Mt. Snyder, where he assembled his 
loyal followers. There, he addressed his audience 
with the following immortal words: "The Conserva- 
tives are preaching the right! Only we are left — 
to preach righteousness!" 

Strategically forming his battle commandos, he 
placed Yehudoh HaDardaki at the helm, to watch 
the ramparts against any further infiltration. Shimon 
HaRubeli was given the task of supervising the 
feeding of the loyalists — and keeping their quarters 
clean. Elozor HaHoffmani was entrusted with the 
task of keeping the troops busy with work — and 
he succeeded beyond all expectations. Yonoson Ha- 
Kamberi, because of his general's air, was crowned 
the master of the regiment; and he brooked no 
nonsense from anyone. And as the chaplain — to 
keep up the morale — the choice was the smiling 
Yochonon HaLichtensteini. To be sure, this was an 
ill-equipped, understaffed and disorganized army. 
But their strategy was to win the enemy by scaring 
and frightening the daylights out of him, and, of 
course, by denying the populace even a breath of 
fresh, clean air! 

At any rate, they temporarily fled to the hills 
until the erection of the new building. What did 
they do in their new secret hideaway.' Well, ac- 
cording to reliable reports, they spent their time 
playing "dreydel", eating latkes, and smoking! 

Every so often, they would embark on guerilla 
warfare raids against the "Meydlach," who they felt 
had succumbed to the Conservative party charms — by 
rapidly becoming half-Jews. Of course, they di- 
rected their main fire — no, I mean smoke — against 
Barry Antiyochus himself. Indeed, Fuldayohu's battle 
cry was: "Give me full Jews or else!" Yochonon 
HaLichtensteini, the chaplain, invoked the blessing 
of Heaven — not on this earth! Shimon HaRubeli 
supervised the communal "benshing" — ^without grace! 
Elozor HaHoffmani made each one stand up to 
work — but, of course, he himself remained seated! 
And Yonoson HaKamberi kept time — with two 
clocks! And, of course, Yehudoh HaDardaki sup- 
plied all the necessary TO TO . And so, these 
righteous raiders won many victories against the 
Conservative party "Meydlach!" 



0r, Ql^tttral f ^stFrteg 



Before I continue with my story, I must inter- 
polate one interesting episode. There hved in those 
days a most attractive woman, by the name of 
Yehuditson. She was very talented in art and heart, 
and her pictures had won her fame throughout the 
world; indeed, the critics called her pictures "out 
of this world." 

Now, this talented Yehuditson not only loved 
Jewish art, but she also had a Jewish heart! And 
so, she wanted very much to help her Jewish peo- 
ple. Thus, it came about that whenever she had 
a free period she would go into the Assyrian army 
camp — for she was very friendly with an important 
general there. It is doubtful whether she captivated 
him with her art or her heart. In fact, many 
believe that it was something else entirely. 

One night, the Assyrian general threw a big 
party, and naturally Yehuditson invited herself. She 
was the life of the party, because she ALWAYS 
made everyone laugh ! As usual, she came with 
her basket of paintings. Well, after the guests had 
all left, Yehuditson remained alone with the drunken 
general. Seizing the opportunity, she bravely chopped 
off the general's head and wrapped it in oilcloth. 
And then, of course, she put it in her basket. She 
was awarded the Knobel Peace Prize for her artistic 
decapitation. However, she refused the money for 
herself, and instead put it in the YJAA Trust 
Fund. The initials.' Yes, you guessed it: Yehudit- 
son's Jewish Art Appreciation Fund. 

And now, back to our story. . . . 

The fighting between Fuldayohu "Righteous" and 
Antiyochus "Right" continued. And then, a number 
of misfortunes betook this illustrious family. Shimon 
HaRubeli was killed by a couple of cheats he had 
antagonized. Elozor HaHoflmani became paralyzed 
from all his sitting. Yonoson HaKamberi's heart 
stopped beating when his clocks stopped ticking. 
But Yochonon HaLichtensteini, though, kept right 
on smiling, trusting in the good L-rd. 

However, Yehudoh HaDardaki kept right on 
battling heroically together with his father, until 
the war was finally won. He managed to capture 




all the fortified places — and the souls of the "Meyd- 
lach" were saved. However, he wasn't satisfied be- 
cause the Wipnn n'3 was still in the 
enemy's control. And so, he told his comrades: 
"We must now capture the Temple, clean it up, 
and light the m "k 3'D to render thanks unto 
own that we have been granted victory." 

However, his followers could not enter the Temple 
grounds because of the foul fumes that filled the 
air. But, since Yehudoh HaDardaki had developed 
an immunity to this condition in "Meydlach-town," 
he ventured into it. But, alas, although he was 
up to his nose in open bottles of oil, he could 
not locate even one bottle that was left untouched 
by the enemy. 

And then, lo and behold, a cry was heard from 
the laboratory: "Hey, get a load of this! I think 
I've got it!. By George, I've got it — a jug of oil 
in the microscope closet which has not been touched 
by human hands ! In fact, it's still in the box, and 
the seal hasn't been broken!" 

Well, you can imagine the joy, when the oil 
burned not only for five school days, but also for 
the whole weekend. That was truly a miracle. 

But, when Fuldayohu saw that the Temple was 
completely demolished, he proclaimed: "We need 
another miracle — a new Temple. And,rt*T' OK 
0^7n — and weather permitting — our new sacred 
building will no longer be a miracle, — just a mirage!" 

And all the people yelled and cheered, and 
there was a riot in the subterranean clucker-room, 
and then, rising above the shouts, Fuldayohu an- 
nounced loudly: "I now proclaim the first two 
periods of tomorrow, Monday, November 30th, as 
a sacred time set aside for sleeping off our troubles. 
And furthermore, to commemorate this significant 
episode of our history, it is hereby decreed that 
Friday, December 4th, and Monday, December 7th, 
shall be national holidays to celebrate the two most 
significant events in Jewish history: nSIJn 
and Pearl Harbor! 

And so, with this good news, our miraculous 
story of TI3 1 3n comes to a happy end!

"The best of times. . . . The worst of times" — Dickens. Today is like a 
garden overrun by insects. Kill the insects, and, for a while, all is well. But a few 
strong ones u'ill survive and begin to multiply. Stronger insecticides will be found, 
but even stronger insects will survive. There were times of great conflict and 
contradiction. Never have u'e enjoyed so much freedom from prejudice, but the 
opposition to freedom has never been so great. The Jews in Israel . . . the Jews 
in Russia. The Civil Rights bill . . . the riots in the South. Atomic energy for 
peaceful uses . . . atomic energy for destruction. The life of Kennedy. . . . The 
death of Kennedy. We can never hope to destroy all insects; we can only pray 
that someday the insects — the bigoted, narrotv-minded, warped, and stupid individuals 
of the tuorld — will themselves realize the harm they are doing, and cease of their 
own volition.

— It's not that I'm prejudiced, Clara, but you know how they are. 

— Yes, Myrtle, I remember when this section was the nicest part of town, and 
now it's a veritable garbage can — rubbish strewn everywhere. 

— And their morals, the language they use — disgusting! I'm afraid to expose 
my children to them. 

Yes, did you hear what happened to Hortense's husband; he was shot and nearly 
killed by one of them! 

— It's always the same. The newspapers are full of it. It's always their kind that are 
committing all the crimes. You rarely read about one of us doing anything like that. 

— Why it's unsafe to leave our homes at night here. The whole place is simply crawl- 
ing with them then. 

— I really think there should be some law to keep them out of places where they are 
not wanted. 

— Yes, and with all their high talk of equality and rights, it's still painfully obvious 
that we're definitely superior to them. 

Clara, if you're willing, let's get a group of us together to plan some form of action. 
Something must be done before we're completely destroyed. 

— Okay, I'll see you again tomorrow and we'll discuss it then. 

— Good-bye, then. 

—Bye! 

"Yes, something must be done to keep humans out of parks and gardens," thought 
Clara as she flew up to her comfortable nest in a Central Park tree.

Amidst the trivial and commonplace of the city, there stands a great (though 
modest) institution, from which emanate the truly great minds of our time: those who 
see the truth, those who strive to understand the profound. Indeed, we are blessed 
to have in our time the members of the establishment. Tonight we bring to you those 
of great acumen, who try to bring to us the world mere mortals cannot see. We present 
the Establishment. 
Speaker for the House — Mrs. Nausska 

I would like to announce our new policies, Unexcused admits will be issued five 
days a week except during vacation. Excused admits will be issued only during the 
thirteenth period of every fifth Thursday in August. Passes to the lounge will not be 
issued except in severe cases such as: appendicitis attacks, comas, or ingrown toenails — 
in which case a doctor's note is required prior to admission to the lounge. Incidentally, 
the old lounge is now the typing room. The new lounge is located in Rabbi Fulda's 
office. Rabbi Fulda's office is now located in the regular office. Though slightly cramped 
for space, the office squad is making a brave effort to adjust to their new headquarters 
on the back staircase. Thank you, girls !

I'm dreaming of a clean lunchroom 
Just like the one we used to know. 
Where one can in solitude, take a big bite 
And not have a neighborly roach give one fright. 
Where one smells dew drops, instead of tuna-stench. 
And where one can remain unstained after sitting on a bench. 
I'm dreaming of a clean lunchroom 
Which I hope will make you able to 
Eat your lunch without a frown 
And, above all, once you eat it, keep it down.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy 

1917-1963 

No man's life better illustrated our times than the life of President Kennedy. It 

was a continuous struggle against all the evil and destructive forces in the world — disease, 

prejudice, hypocrisy, and war. His election to the presidency was an all-too-brief victory 

over these forces. But it was a beginning . . . 



All this will not he finished in the first hundred days. Nor will it be finished in the first 
thousand days, nor in the life of this administration . . . hut let us begin. . . . 

John Fitzgerald Kennedy 



THE BEST 
OF TIMES . . . 




/ do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any 
other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor, 
ivill light our country and all who serve it. And the glow from that fire can truly light the 
ivorld. 

John Fitzgerald Kennedy 



Manfred Kreiner 




In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role 
of defending freedom in its own hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this 
responsibility — / welcome it. 

John Fitzgerald Kennedy 





77 




THE WORST DF TIMES 



Peace and freedom do not come cheap, and we are destined . . . to live out most of our 
lives in uncertainty, and challenge and ■peril. 

John Fitzgerald Kennedy 




K_ 





Lives of great men all remind us 
We can make our lives sublime, 

And departing, leave behind us 
Footprints on the sands of time. . . .

"The torch has been passed to a new generation. . . ." 

John Fitzgerald Kennedy 

How many times, in years gone by, have we been lulled to sleep by stirring 
orations beginning: "The Youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow" P Now, for 
a senior, these rather trite words take on an ominous meaning. "M.e?"^-you say, 
cringing slightly — "The leader of tomorroiv? 1 just want to get married and raise a 
family." Think for a moment, dear senior. Even if you do not become a doctor, 
lawyer, nurse, psychologist, or artist, you will still have a very important task to 
fulfill. In raising a family, you will be instilling into your children the values that 
will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Even if you are not a leader of 
THIS generation, you will be a molder of the leaders of the NEXT generation. So, 
senior, whatever you become, don't take your tasks lightly, for YOU are . . . Tomorrow.

And the feel of cool air on my face 

I love a quiet night 

And songs like Stardust 

and yellow dresses

I love to walk in the autumn 

and kick the leaves 

and hear them crunch 

I love to see young people 

so full of life 

and the little hoy with his ice cream cone 

and a well-wrinkled hut wise face 

filled with understanding. 

And pigeons in the park 

and the beach in April 

When no-one is there.

People, of course, but what kind. 

That little girl 

With two fat shiny braids

What is beauty. 

Something that gives pleasure. 

Something that thrills 

That excites. 

Does beauty come suddenly 

or is it always there 

Waiting for an eye to open 

a heart to awake, 

To see beauty. 

Can beauty be a thing 

that makes me cry 

and sob 

I think there have been times 

when 1 have laughed, 

with a beautiful thing 

that brought joy. 

So how can beauty be measured 

for its strength and actual presence. 

Beauty is a petal, a leaf 

a shiny cap of hair 

freckles 

a story 

a dream 

a green and brown day. 

a scarf covering silken locks. 

clear eyes that speak 

hungry youth alive. 

Can beauty last forever? 

It's true the sky will always be 

but a snowflake 

on a nose tip 

that will live in glory a moment 

and die. 

What is beauty 

It is something my heart has seen. 

Only this sight, this feeling 

could make me wonder 

what beauty really is.

VI. 

August 

The seagulls flapped their wings that day 

and flew overhead. 

I stood above the ground on the platform 

and watched the trains come and leave. 

Coney Island and people and noise 

were fust beyond the bend of the tracks. 

and the little cars were rocking 

071 the ferris wheel. 

It was cool as 1 stood there 

much cooler than home 

and the wind was good on my face. 

and it was quiet 

with noise in the distance 



and I saw a little box 

with food to feed the birds 

Maybe they're fust pigeons 

but it's funny, 

somebody cares enough 

to see that birds are fed. 

Strange birds. 

I'm not strange to the people I know 

(not like the birds) 

But 1 must be strange 

or I would he fed too. 

VII. 

In the waiting room 

of the dentist' s office 

sits a tank filled with water 

and with fish. 

It is quiet 

and the water bubbles 

and they swim past the corals 

and brightly rainboiv painted rock. 

Sometimes 'you press your nose 

onto the glass 

and the fish stares 

and swims away. 

Sometimes 

1 want to jump in 

and stick tny toiigue out 

at the people stari7ig in 

and swim away forever. 

But I must go home 

and eat my supper 

or my mother will worry. 

anyway 

It's no fun at all 

When you have to swim alone.

vin. 

IFhaf's the sense in going to bed early. 

I'd never jail asleep anyway. 

I think it makes more sense 

to sit in the kitchen and eat potato chips. 

To think about graduating 

and the boy with the blue eyes. 

It makes more sense 

than kicking your cover on the floor 

and bumping your head on the headboarc 



It makes more sense 

than having an extra hour 

to tremble at your nightmares. 

I will file my nails 

and drink some chocolate milk 

and maybe later go to sleep. 

And tomorrow 

I will buy an eclaire 

and the teacher will yell at me 

for Dreaming. 

IX. 

Soon it will be warm. 

First 

I will put my winter jacket away 

then I will go to the park. 

maybe I will go 

early Sunday morning. 

I will ride the merry-go-round 

and roll around in the grass 

and stare at young couples. 

Maybe I will buy cracker-fax 

like when I was little. 

and maybe I will look at 

the Zebras in the zoo. 

Maybe I will talk to the man 

who works on the merry-go-round 

Once Goldie and I 

Went to the park 

on a warm Sunday morning 

when we should have been 

at our College-Board course. 

We talked to the man on 

the merry-go-round 

he was really fust a boy. 

and we talked to him 

and he told us 

that when he was very young 

he was very poor 

and never went away 

or had any fun 

so when he could, 

he got a fob 

near people and children 

and laughter. 

He was happy.

Oh, thou Fmal Week 

Thou, like the storm 

Dost terrify the trembling masses 

And like the blackest plague 

Dost render silence in the ni^ 

When till the early morning 

Burns a light 

A hollow-eyed and weary soul 

Doth look a fright. 

Oh, thou Final Week 

Thy power steals into the minds 

And bodies of poor downtrodden 

The dying scholars whose eyes 

With toothpicks are propped open 

Thy clutching grasp 

Against which they will fight 

Who rise to arms with No-Doz 

And coffee black. 

Oh. Final Week! 

Thy three o'clock in the morning shower; 

Thy four hours sleep; 

Thy crawling to Final chambers 

With pencils sharpened 

But with brains quite dulled; 

Thy in-between-the-finals 

Two hour stretch. 

When broken, failing souls 

Begin to retch 

Thy maddened scramble for a place to learn 

Alas! Bach classroom's filled. 

The bathroom taken, too; 

Alas! Each staircase covered 

With those haggard souls 

Whose frantic maddened eyes 

Devour 

The pages of the scrolls of time {slime); 

Alas! The locker-room is crowded! 

Indeed the lockers themselves 

Have squeezed within 

Another dying, emaciated scholar. 

Alas! Alas! 

To thee, Final Week, 

I do salute 

And when thou dost end 

I shall not rant with rage 

And passion mad — nor weep. 

I'll only sleep. 

Sleep . . .

Babysitter's Meditation Upon a Snowflake 



Oh, tell me, little girl 
At the window-side. 
What can you he watching 
With eyes open wide? 

"Cant you see the fairies 
'Lighting from their ride? 
Snowflakes are their coaches 
Which on winds do glide. 

"They are all returning 
Prom their Jack Frost Ball, 
Where they have been dancing 
In an icy hall. 

"Can't you hear the music, 
The sweet harmonies?" 
To me it's fust the wind 
Blowing through the trees. 

But show me little girl. 
Where the fairies he — 
/, too, was once like you; 
Now I cannot see. 

I once saw a rainbow 
Sliding down my pane. 
But soon grownups told me. 
It was fust some rain. 

But have you ever watched, 
Darling little child. 
Waves toss on the ocean 
Of a storm sky wild? 

Please tell me that you can — 
1 now look in vain — 
¥or I can only find 
Clouds that bring the rain. 

For you are but a child 
As yet unaged; 
Not worn by the years; 
By cares not caged. 

Oh, lucky little girll 
Innocence can see. 
Am I then so time-worn. 
To be blinder than thee?

— "I an) a Pilgrim. I am a Pilgrim and I came to Plymouth, Massachusetts on 
the Mayflower in 1620. I was born in 1492. Isn't that a coincidence judge? Did you 
know that Columbus came to America that same year? Oh, you did." 

— "Nyet, I nevur had enyeeting to do vit the Communists in America, chudge. 
Vat meks you ask me dat? Don't let my heccent trow you. Dat's vat hoppens ven 
you leeve too lung in Brookleen. Yes, I svare allegiance to premiere L.B.J, and 
the U.S.S. of A. I mean U.S.A. I vant to be your comrade." 

— "Would you mind repeating that question? Let me see. Who was Tom 
Paine? Oh, yes, everybody knows that. He was that famous tall cowboy you see 
in all the old western pictures with Marlene Dietrich." 

— "That's incorrect, Miss Gerber." 

— "Oh, that's right. How silly of me. That's fohn Wayne I was thinking of. 
He He He He . . . (oi vey). Please ask me another one, judge, and don't make 
it the one about how many stripes there are in our flag. Lines make me dizzy. 
Oh, and while you're at it, skip the one about the number of stars, too. I just 
don't know a thing about constellations and my math is abominable. You know 
how those things are." (I could swear that the judge is mumbling something 
under his breath other than the "Star Spangled Banner.") 

— "Oh, I was preoccupied, sir. Would you mind repeating the question? You 
asked how old a senator and a member of the House have to be? Well, they 
have to be 18 to drink in New York and they can obtain drivers' permits at 16. 
I don't know about the ages in Washington, but . . . That's not what you were 
referring to, sir? Oh, I see." (I wish he'd stop asking such tough ones. He's un- 
nerving my tranquility.) 

— "One last chance. Miss Gerber, or I'm afraid we'll have to deport you or 
withhold your citizenship papers." 

— (Here goes nothing) 

— "What roles does the judicial department of our government play?" 

— "Oh, I know that one, judge. The /ewdicial part of our government "Paskens 
Deenim" for the general welfare of the Jews and passes on the constitutionality 
of "Halochoth," (Something tells me that the judge didn't appreciate the last one. 
I think I'd better appeal to his humanitarianism.) 

— "Judge Stinkelfein — Oh, I'm sorry — Judge Finkelstein, I sincerely feel that 
these questions don't at all reflect on my attitude towards becoming citizen of the 
U.S. I would be more than proud to become an accepted member of this mighty 
nation. As flustered as I may appear to you, I know enough to realize the im- 
portance of becoming a part of this vast country. Perhaps I do get a trifle (well, 
all right, extremely, if you like) nervous, but I would be honored if you would 
reconsider and give me one last crack at it." (There! I've said it!) 

— ""Very well, I'll give you one last chance. Now think this over carefully be- 
fore answering. What happens when the president of the U.S. dies?" 

— "That's simple, sir," I beamed. "They bury him!"

This entire scene repeatedly appeared to disturb my slumber and torture my 
mind the night before I was to become a citizen of the U.S. The fantastically 
ludicrous dream had been recurring more often as the final day arrived. Actually, 
I think that my dismal premonitions stemmed from a sense of guilt, dating back 
to the time when I was approximately eleven or twelve years old. My grandmother, 
who, not quite having mastered the use of the English language, asked none other 
than her "well-versed" granddaughter (me) to help her study some questions neces- 
sary for her application for citizenship. Since I had, at the time, shall we say, 
"a sense of humor," I thought it would be very amusing if I were to teach her 
to tell the interrogating judge that she was a Pilgrim, having come to the U.S. on 
the Mayflower in 1620. Never thinking that not only might her papers be with- 
held, but that she might be locked up as deranged, I chuckled in delight as she 
solemnly repeated in broken English what I had taught her. (But fear not, I clued 
her in towards the end and ruined all the fun, and she finally became a citizen.) 
Somehow, I think that all this flooded back to my memory when my turn arose to 
be sworn in as a citizen. 

Consequently, since it was too late to do anything about my guilt feelings, I 
went to take my oath with a heavy heart. To my great consternation, I wasn't 
asked a single question like the ones that had appeared in my dreams. A clerk 
merely administered some oath of allegiance to me and to my parents, and before 
I knew it, I was a citizen. You see, I, unlike my grandmother, had accomplished 
this by means of "derivation," which to ordinary laymen (laywomen) means that 
the only eflfort exerted on my part was having been born. Moral: If you teach 
your grandmother or other members of your immediate family "gobbledygook" which 
they don't understand, you may not become a citizen. 

Solution: Teach it to strangers!

STATE OF THE UNION MESSAGE 

by FRIEDA SCHUBIN, G.O. President 

"IN THE NAME OF YESHIVA UNIVERSITY HIGH SCHOOL FOR GIRLS 
OF BROOKLYN, I CALL THIS MEETING TO ORDER." 

A very auspicious beginning for a very typical G.O. meeting. After bringing 
ail necessary business to the attention of a very weary G.O. Assembly, the meetmg 
closes in an an}1:hing but austere manner. I mumble a hurried — "Does anybody move?" 
—and all immediately move to the (one and only) nearest door, murmuring: "I 
move, I move." 

Being G.O. president has its truly amusing sides. I shall never forget the time 

a lady from (to protect the guilty) called me up, innocently inquiring 

whether I had written "The Mikado." After all, I had been the producer of the 
school production, hadn't I? I patiently informed her that Gilbert and Sullivan were 

the operetta's proud authors. No, Mrs. (to protect the innocent), the play 

does NOT have a Chanukah theme, I further explained to the poor disillusioned woman. 

MY PROUDEST MOMENT: When a junior stopped me on the street to tell 
me that this year's G.O. is the wackiest one ever. What do you mean, I queried. 
Well, she said, you and 'Vera do the nuttiest things. Like yesterday when . . . 

She was referring to March 3rd, Alexander Graham Bell's birthday. Being the 
alert and watchful G.O. officers we are, we naturally keep track of the birthdays 
of important personages such as Alexander the Great, Madame Pompadour, Romulus 
and Remus, Benedict Arnold, Ethelred the Unready, and Alexander Graham Bell. 
In honor of Alexander Graham Bell's birthday, and to accord the inventor of that 
wonderful instrument— the telephone— the credit due him, we composed a song 
"G-d Bless the Telephone", perched ourselves, on the front staircase, and greeted 
each incoming Brooklyn Centralite with this tune. After all, one of the duties of 
the G.O. is to disseminate pertinent information amongst the student body. And 
which Centralite (students and administration alike), I ask you, does not make fre- 
quent use of the telephone.' 

I was always under the suspicion that freshmen were rather naive, but I was 
never quite sure. After all, why not give the underprivileged classes the benefit of 
the doubt? But, after you hear the following, you'll see that there isn't much room 
left for doubt. A week after I had announced that Centralites would be permitted 
to come escorted to the Senior Play, I discovered that the freshmen were under the 
impression that they would not be permitted to come unescorted to this major 
G.O. function!!! 

In order to understand teachers, we were told, we must put ourselves in their 
shoes. Upon hearing this, we immediately hastened to the teachers' room, and 
upon not finding their shoes, we adorned ourselves, instead, with their coats and 
hats, generously leaving our "Central Senior" stickers on their hats. 

Yes, being G.O. president has truly been its own reward. Under what other 
circumstances could I have become acquainted with the intimate hves of such famous 
people as: Borough President Abe Stark— who's planning to create a (Brooklyn) 
Central Park? ... or Menahel Rabbi Fulda— whose vitamin-enriched cigarettes 
produce "holy smoke'? ... or Guess Who? whose gruff exterior hides a gruff interior? 

Funny, but according to one of our teachers— whose class always finds me m a 
talkative mood, I ran for the wrong office. Once, exasperated by my constant chatter, 
the Doctor exclaimed: "You should have run for Speaker of the House!" 

Really, I must terminate my memoirs at this point, for my emotions are getting 
the best of me. In fact, I feel all choked uf^Mr. Cantor, where are you? 



133 




THE MEETING 



The names in this play have been changed to protect the innocent ( ?) 

Scene: Sunday afternoon, in the study of a comfortable house in the Boro 
Park section of Brooklyn. Several assorted girls are sitting on chairs, the floor, or 
the desk. Bov/ls of potato chips, corn chips, pretzels, and other delicacies are being 
passed back and forth. Ursula, a chubby girl with freckles, is trying to do a yoga 
exercise to the rhythm of a Bob Dylan song. Suddenly, a thought dawns upon her. 

Ursula: Hey kids, the meeting was called for 10:00 o'clock and now it's 4:00 
o'clock. Don't you think we should get started.' (Please pass the potato chips.) 

(Prudence, an intellectual looking blue-eyed girl with high-piled hair, arched 
eyebrows, and mink bows and cufflinks, is fluttering her eyelashes in two directions 
and eating corn chips.) 

Prudence: Yes, (munch, munch) the yearbook is due March 16; don't you 
think we should get to work.' After all, it's April 11 today. (Don't you have any 
sour cream for these corn chips.') 

(Lola, a striking blend of Bohemia and Americana, with swinging honey-colored 
hair, is doing the "Isodettes" commercial; when she hears Prudence's words, she 
stops.) 

Lola: Dunt stop mee now ven I hem dohing my fiynest rrrole. Eeets liyke pooting 
eh stake in mine hearrrt. 



134 



(Faith, a beautiful girl with a radiant smile, is playing with a yo-yo.) 

Faith: I think Ursula and Prudence are right. Let's get started. Has anyone 
thought of a theme? 

(Angelica, a pert, all-American girl, is sitting cross-legged on the floor, playing 
"Blowin' in the Wind.") 

Angelica: (She strikes an A minor chord and says, meditatively . . .) Why 
do we need a theme at all; themes are so trite. 

Lola: Yeah, man, like why don't we just announce to the world that we have 
no theme? Let's be original. (I'm hungry; please pass the chocolate-covered kosher 
marshmallows.) 

Faith: (still playing with the yo-yo . . .) 506, 507, 508, 509, 510, 511, 512— 
hey, I broke my record! Yes, Angelica, that sounds very good in theory, but how 
would you carry it out? . . . 513, 514, "515, 5X6. . . . 

Ursula: No, we've got to have a theme. We're getting a new building next 
year ( *1 HST OX and weather permitting;) we have a new principal; we have 
new teachers; we have to have something about the future, about change, about . . . 

(Prudence tries to take the Bob Dylan record off.) 

Ursula: No! No! No! You can't do this to me— you must put him back!!! 

Prudence: I want to listen to Andy Williams! 

Angelica: Andy Williams, how bourgeois— Put on Eric Anderson! 

Lola: No, let's listen to the mating call of the Uruguayan aardvark. 

Faith: 517, 518, 519, 520 — No, let's listen to the Moonlight Sonata. 

(A battle ensues, and Ursula emerges victorious (since it's her record player.) 
But to show her magnanimity, she compromises with "Rhapsody in Blue.") 

Ursula: O.K., let's get down to business. Did anyone listen to Jean Shepard 
last night? 

Prudence: Ursula!!!! Come on, someone think of something! 

Lola: How about "An Ode to Op Art" ? 

Faith: How about "Ring in the Old and Ring out the New"? 

Angelica: How about "The Times They are a-Changin' " ? 

(Prudence roles her eyes heavenward, counts to a hundred, and begins to recite 
(in order not to explode.) 

Prudence: Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, creeps in this petty pace 
from day to day. . . . And all our yesterdays. . . . 

Ursula: That reminds me, did anyone see Marcello Mastroianni in "Yesterday, 
Today, and Tomorrow"? 

Everyone in unison: Hey! That's it! Eureka!! By George, she's got it! 
(And thus, the theme for our yearbook is decided upon. Merriment ensues, 
and the editors return to their respective homes, satisfied, after a long hard day's work.)

CENTRAL OF TDMDRRDW 



Welcome, friends, to the new building of Yeshiva University High School 
for Girls of Israel. 

We are now entering the main office. School has just begun. It seems as if 
some of the girls are late. Let's listen: 

Girl: "But, Mrs. Lantern, my supersonic xkgy-177896% flying saucer just broke 
down." 

Mrs. Lantern: "That's no excuse, young lady, Jupiter is only 3,000,000,000 
miles away from Earth. You could easily have taken the interplanetary bleeperplane." 

We are now entering the spacious dining room. It seats 10,000,000, and is 
divided in half. There are self-service machines for almost every Kosher delicacy 
in the universe. Chopped liver, kreplach, salami, kishka, kosher chicken chow mein, 
etc. on the Meat side of the dining room; cheesecake, tunafish salad, buttermilk, 
blintzes, knishes, kosher pizza pie, etc. on the Milk side. In the center are the 
pareve machines. The plates, silverware, trays, tablecloths, and cups are all disposable. 

Let me demonstrate: I'll put 25 P'rutot into this machine, and — OUCH! I 
got the dieters' machine. 

We are now entering the gymnasium. Since science has made exercise obsolete, 
we are fully equipped with the latest ways of doing nothing, bringing an end 
to the CANNOT era. 

Let's now take this atomic-powered elevator up. We have now arrived at the 
laboratory floor. Here is the biology lab, where frogs dissect themselves; the chemistry 
lab, where — just last week — two students turned into aardvarks by swallowing a 
concocted formula they insisted was HjO; the balabuste lab, where our ingenious 
seniors have invented the chicken-koshering machine, which is next to perfect (and 
almost as good as Mother Jean's). 

Now, let's look at a regular classroom. The wide, cheerfully-painted rooms 
are air-conditioned in the summer and automatically heated in the winter. Each stu- 
dent is seated at a large walnut desk, in a swivel chair. Notice the spaces between 
each desk; this is to encourage individuality and to discourage what was once crudely 
known as "cheating." On each desk is a television set whereby the student can see 
the robot teacher. (All our staff members are inhuman robots, and therefore always 
fair and impartial.) During exams, the student drops her answers into the slot in 
the television set. When the robot teacher addresses a student, or a student asks a 
question (by means of a microphone on the left side of the television), the screen 
immediately shows the student, so that there can be at least some sort of class 
participation. 

Now, we are on our way to the final destination — the Menahel's office, aflFectionately 
nicknamed "The Lion's Den." It is lined from top to bottom with the finest 
Sijrey Kodesh in the universe. In the center stands a majestic mahogany desk, whose 
drawers pop out SCW and TIW applications at a finger's touch. The Menahel's 
staff is quite large, consisting of 5 robot stenographers and 5 robot typists taking 
down his innovations, as well as 10 robot workers carrying out his plans. His door 
is open at all times to students seeking advice and to students answering for their vices. 

I hope that you have enjoyed your visit to Central. Your tourist Xyxkeruyz 
plane is waiting to take you all back to your respective planets. L'bhra'ot! 



Ode to Nature DDE TD NATURE 



by JESSICA LIDSKY 



How' beautiful the rishig sun at dawn, 
An orange hall of fire against the blue 
Of sky. How fragrant is an early morn 
In S firing. The soft, warm air embraces you. 

Along the path the flow'rs have sweetly bloomed, 
Their lazy stems sway with the balmy breeze, 
The woods are now so pretty and well groomed, 
And chirping birds fly in and out of trees. 

These very trees in winter will be bare, 

The woods that once were green will then be white, 

The singing birds no longer will be there 

The sun on silent stillness sets at night, 

O Nature, mortals may not know your worth, 
Thou art the greatest gift G-d gave to earth. 




A TRACE DF THANKS 



by RITA STRENGER 



The babe knows nought but of his selfish plight. 
Obstrusively he enters with a cry. 

He grasps for life with fists and eyes clenched tight, 
And greedily he sucks his mother dry. 

He' s apathetic to the piercing pain, 
Indifrent to the tri'ls he's brought about. 
He's striving to get all that he can gain, 
And feels deserving of the best, no doubt. 

There' s solely one who knows the hidden truth, 
The one who freely gave of her own be'ng. 
The one who suffered through her small child's youth, 
And will forever suffer till" death's free'ng. 

No recompense is asked for all she bore. 
A trace of thanks is all her heart craves for.

SPRING 



by ZINA LIPNICK 



Inspired with the fragrance of a May morn 
Came Spring blooming with a flowery wreath 
Youthful and cheerful with a smile adorn 
Awoke sleeping nature hack on her feet. 

The earth fust clad in a. brand-new attire 
Is proud of every leaf and fresh flower 
Lucky who without any pain could admire 
With a cheeiful eye the nature's power. 

The air is full of twitter and chatter 
The birds on their wings are flying again 
Sorrows and cares no more seem to matter 
Except the melody's charming refrain. 

Ifs Spring, the youth of our life in full bloom 
The love and hope, that of a bride and groom.
